Well got the D200 for Christmas and the weather was nice this morning, so I managed to get some nice test shots. What a stunning camera. Following are images. All I did was straighten horizon, crop and apply unsharp mask. Nothing else!!! Judge for yourself

Regards

Andrew

Andy,

Can we see some full size unedited images to see quality 'out-of-the-box' please?

Cheers

Ben

Some interesting topics going at DPR and Freds on this test of the 5D and the D200.
Also it seems quite a few people are reporting hot pixels in brand new D200's which may mean some QC issues with the new body.

really is quite a remarkable difference. To my untrained eye. Especially on the closeups?

Very nice photos.

I am using a Nikon D70. Some of the setting are automatic or can be adjusted by the photographer.

When you use the Nikon D200 do you leave the setting on automatic or do you have your personalize settings ?

Regards,

Pierre

Don't do it! Keep it as a spare camera, just in case!

those potatobaer test results seem quite strange to me and i don´t care if it´s real or fake, or whatever, the pictures i got out of my d200 all look a lot better...

well, anyway, no need to start a war, 5d and d200 are both great cameras and still the photographer taking the shot and doing the post processing makes the big difference.

PS: hope to get some nice sunny pictures in MAD tomorrow, the wheather at home has been nothing but grey since i got the D200 Sad

Yeah your maybe right. i would only get peanuts for it anyway. Although Jessops in the UK will take it as a trade in and they are matching anything online at the mo.

Well I expected the 5D to be a little better but apart from that nobody should take these comparisons to seriously.
Most likely the differences are caused by different glass in front of the camera.

Couldn't care less about the comparisons......just know that I am loving what I am getting out of the D200, that's the important thing for me. No hot pixels on this D200....just a "hot photographer" Big grin

Anyway, regarding the other question, yes I do personalise my settings.

I'm thinking I might invest in a Canon 1d mark II n. Recently I have been doing quite a bit of non-aviation shooting and I think its new features would come in handy. Plus I've read a number of articles that say unless you are going 1DS Mk. II it's not worth it to go full frame....

I think people really get so wrapped up in pixle peeping that they miss out on a whole lot of photography.
Take a look through some of the posts on the 5D vs D200 to see that.
They even did a test of the D200 vs the 1Dmk2N with those fluffy bear shots which which supposedly done by Nikon.
I seem to doubt that as the shots where good but in the comparison it looked poor in the comparison with poor resolving power of fine detail etc.
Different camera's for different audiences.
You really do have a great choice of gear at the moment.
The D2X and D200,D100,D70 for Nikon shooters and the 1DsMk2, 1Dmk2(N), 5D, 350D and 20D for the Canon crowd.
Could it get much better??

Funny you say this.....I was still reading Andy's reply while I was thinking the same thing! Anyway, glad that you like your new D200.

Andy, which lens did you use for that shot. Do you have the EXIF data availalbe.

Darren summed it up. Whatever brand you use. Overall, we (as the end consumers) can be pretty happy with what's available. Like in real life......nothing beats a good competition!!!!!!!!!

Hi All,

Regarding the "addition" yes I sent a mail to the screeners to ask if they thought it appropriate to add a shot priority for a "common" subject but for a new camera type that a that generated a lot of interest. They decided yes (not because I'm a screener) I believe that this would have been done if someone else had requested. (The squeaky wheel gets the grease) Above all, a.net does look for scoops, and this time it is "camera" related. I am sure that some people will feel otherwise, but where did we ever get 100% agreement!

Regarding the lens: 70-200mm VR F2.8 ED

I'll try to search out the EXIF when Iget home.

Cheers!

Andrew

I wanna D200!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  hissyfit 

Keep up the excellent work, and lets see many more shots from this camera. Oh, and keep us informed (all D200 users) of any quirks or foibles it may have. I may one day get the authorisation past the Accountant (wife) to go out and buy one!

Cheers and a Happy new Year to all
